That wasn’t a terrible game Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mitch Trubisky played Thursday night. He actually improved from the stinker he played only four days before.
But was it good? No. Was it enough to win an important game against a struggling division foe? No.
So now we’re going to test the narrative the Steelers put out before the regular season began about their starting quarterback. That narrative is Trubisky is the Steelers starting quarterback because of his experience and athletic ability and proven ability to win NFL regular season games. And that’s the way it will remain the entire season.
Yeah, raised eyebrows of doubt.
Coach Mike Tomlin was so certain that narrative would hold up he told FOX Sports insider Jay Glazer he’s sticking with Trubisky all season long.
Well, slow your roll. Because Trubisky is 1-2 as Pittsburgh’s starter. The offense has four touchdowns in three games. And Trubisky is not performing consistently enough. Although his latest outing—a modest 207 passing yards against Cleveland—was actually somewhat encouraging.
